Canadian pop-crooner Carly Rae Jepsen's catchy single "Call Me Maybe" has been certified platinum in the U.S. selling 1.2 million singles.  The third place runner-up in 2005's Canadian Idol, Jepsen's hit single was already a number #1 hit in her native country. It hit #1 on the iTunes singles charts in at least five countries including the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and has cracked the top 5 on the U.S. iTunes chart.

"Call Me Maybe" skyrocketed to international chart-topper after fellow Canadian, Justin Bieber tweeted about the song in conjuction with uploading  a YouTube video as he lip-sync'd to the song with girlfriend Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale.  That video raked in over 34 million hits while Jepsen's official video for "Call Me Maybe" attracted just over 30 million.  Last week, thousands turned out for Carly Rae Jepsen's  her first U.S. concert at Universal's CityWalk 5 Towers.

And just last month, Ryan Seacrest announced Carly will be playing at the annual 102.7 KIIS FM's Wango Tango on May 12th at L.A.'s Home Depot Center. Check out more pics on our Flickr page right HERE.
